Jersey welcomed actor David Tennant to the island for a charity screening of his new film You, Me and Him.

The romantic comedy tells of a female couple who both become pregnant at the same time.

The appeal is formed by the charities Baby Lifeline, Philip's Footprints and Friends of SCBU.

The actor, who is a Baby Lifeline ambassador, says the themes of the film connect well to the help the charity provides.
